Eight by Eight #16
Eight by Eight is a magazine about football (soccer) and its place in American culture. Inside is the perfect storm of art direction, football, and storytelling.
In this issue: 27 pages are devoted to “The Greatness Factor,” a celebration of football’s all-time best players—who’s undisputed? who’s nearly there and who just might be one day? And who better to kick it off than Pelé? Although the players joining the Brazilian legend in the top 10 may be familiar, Eight by Eight seeks to present them in a new way... and the list isn’t quite as expected as you might think.
The rest of the issue is packed with intimate and insightful profiles on Lucy Bronze, Troy Deeney, and Wilfried Zaha. There's also an examination of VAR, a look at the 50 most important people in football, and much much more.
